Hello guy ! Happy seeing that you're using almost the same rig as me  :D For my case i have a 5600k and i have overclocked it at a mid range as i don't want to set high vcores in order to save my cpu and for energy saving because very high frequencies are noticeable through benchmarks only and not through 24/7 use... so i set my parameters as follow: 40x100 @ 1,30v / ddr3 at xmp1 8-8-8-24 2t @ 1,50v / llc at auto / turbocore off and integrated graphics off / cnq on / uncore-memory northbridge at 1800 mhz... when just received my rig i tried several settings till 42x100 @ 1,35v-1375v but during stress my rig was hanging or rebooting... and the gain of 200 mhz more isn't worth for me....

Finally a reply to my post hehe!

Well here is my complete setup


G1.sniper a88x
Amd A10-5800k
Gskills  -  2133    2x4    ram
Corsair  450
Cooler master T4   = cpu cooler

Well so far i have not touched the Voltages since I have no idea what to change  LOL 

What idid was


change multiplier of CPU to  40  - i find this is the most stable
Change memory settings to XMP profile 1
GPU - 800   to 1000

-and from time to time it hangs  :(

I have no plans on using another Video card since I am waiting for Kaveri

Have you tried overclocking with just the onboard GPU?

Sorry Solidsnak3 to hear that your rig hangs from time to time  :-\ I think it could be an eventual problem of your psu... is it at least 80+ bronze ? As if you haven't desactivated the turbocore function it bumps your default vcore from 1,35v to 1,45v (+ 0,1v when activated) and your psu might have problem to give enough energy on the +12v rail...As piledriver/zambezi cores of those Apus are very hungry...try to disable turbocore and set manually the cpu vcore at +0,00v... Concerning my rig i have a Gigabyte HD 7970 Ghz Edition for the video coming from my previous am3+ rig so you should understand that i haven't tried (and will never) the integrated graphics of my cpu (onboard graphics) even though it is far away superior than the last intel onboard graphics... And indeed i have purchased this sniper and my 5600k for the upcoming KAVERI  8) ;D :D ;)

Just hope Kaveri will keep its promises !! As concerns your rig even with the built in graphics upon Kaveri you will sooner or late buy a decent graphics card if you want to play last games on high resolutions and details... A good compromise are the R9 280X/270X or for a lower budget the R7 260X  ;) But i think you will be obliged to change your psu for a 80+ bronze 500w or more...If so choose a good brand (Fortron, Seasonic, Antec, Silverpower, Silverstone, Be quiet, Superflower).
